The March VPS call on was a full success. This month, we had the APECS Working Group (WG) on Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments set up the Virtual Poster Session. The call was chaired by Mateusz Strzelecki, the APECS chair of the Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments WG, and APECS Poland representative with the Council. Invited were two mentors as presenters:
Professor Achim A. Beylich (Chair of SEDIBUD - International Association of Geomorphologists Working Group on Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments) with the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU), and the Department of Geography, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. He introduced us to the achievements and future goals of the SEDIBUD Network and explained his research on cold region sediment budgets in Norway.
Dr. Armelle Decaulne (Clermont-Ferrand, France) presented her research projects in Iceland and talked about career development opportunities for APECS to one of the most successful cold region geomorphology initiatives SEDIBUD.
With an introduction to the goals of the Sediment Budgets in Cold Environments WG and informing about an upcoming workshop this fall rounded up the presentations and discussion nicel (Sixth I.A.G./A.I.G. SEDIBUD Workshop: Sedimentary fluxes dynamics in the changing mountain and polar environment - monitoring, record & consequences; Zakopane, Poland, September 3-11, 2011).
